Tension is rising all over the world. It has been for a long time. There wasn't a real recovery from the Great Recession, and the next recession is
upon us. Here in the US, low income groups are feeling the pain. Remember a low income American is like a third world millionaire. That's just one
The US and Russia look like they want to reenact all their previous wars: a new Cold War, a few more proxy wars, maybe they'll try to start WW3
again, who knows? It's hard to tell how far that will go before everyone realizes how monumentally stupid it is. All our world leaders were alive
during the Cold War, right? I don't remember it being any fun, and we won it (or just out waited them).
Europe has been a financial mess for a while now, and they have had a lot of other countries' problems spill over onto them, from multiple directions.
Countries have been threatening to jump ship since the Greek financial crisis, and now Britain voted to leave the EU. Whether or not it was a good

(No jobs? Too much immigration? Ridiculous inflation? I honestly don't know).
China just had an economic crisis a year ago, they may be rethinking a lot of their previous plans going forward.
So yeah, there's a lot going on this month. It definitely seems like there's a new crisis every time you turn on the news. Bear in mind all these
crises today are occurring on top of all these systemic problems no one bothered to solve, amidst all these rising tensions as the whole world still
feels poorer but can't figure out why. The hardest part now is trying to figure out what bad news is isolated incidents and what is symptoms of
So I guess what I'm really saying is there are very legitimate reasons to be afraid.
